How can learning technology foster and support the “learning while earning” concept? The challenge is the same everywhere: how can talent and learning managers make sure that their investments in training, coaching, and events are paid back in business results and are leading to the sustainable change of behaviors? While various success drivers are well known in the industry, it does not mean they are easy to implement in every company. But looking across the border may help: What have companies in other countries tried, and what has worked (or not) for them? In this session, you will discover some modern learning technology elements that have already been implemented in Europe. You will find out which success conditions have to be fulfilled and which barriers have to be overcome. At the end of the session, you will be able to prepare your own conceptual draft for your company’s future learning while earning project.
